“Outlier” is a scientific term to describe things or phenomena that lie outside the normal experience or an observation that is numerically distinct from the rest of the data.

in the vineyard : The distinct ravine which embodies Stellenbosch Kloof harnesses all the qualities of a well-orientated compass. Varying elevations and aspects allows us to grow a selection of classic varieties to specific sites that optimise this expression through their location. The cooler south- and east-facing aspects, unique in Stellenbosch, hosts the more sensitive and aromatic white-skinned grape varieties.

Stellenbosch Kloof enjoys a cooler Mediterranean climate with maritime influences from False Bay, 14km to the south, and a refreshing breeze channelled from the West Coast’s Benguela current 24km to the north-west. These two breezes culminate at the top end of the ravine and bring in early morning mists, especially from False Bay. Consequently, temperatures in our meso-climate can be measured at least 3° Celsius cooler than inland Stellenbosch during ripening periods. This adds a unique characteristic to Jordan wines.

about the harvest: Harvested on the 18th February 2021 at 22.3°B.

in the cellar : The grapes received 6 – 10 hours skin contact before being gently pressed in a “pneumatic” tank press. After inoculation the juice was fermented in 10% new French oak barrels and the rest in second, third and fourth-fill barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers with a 10% American oak barrel selection). The wine spent 8 months “sur lie” with occasional “batonage” to accentuate the leesy character. 40% tank-fermented sauvignon blanc was added
to the blend.
